Winlink intro and training in Ensenada Baja CA MX

Winlink intro and 2 hour training class presented in Ensenada Baja CA MX. In Mexico you have to attend many hours at a sponsored course to obtain a certificate to apply for a license. Among theory, regulations, formulas, and radio operations, is also Winlink training as Mexico's FMRE, (arrl), has adopted Winlink as their primary EMCOMM digital system.

The students took the packaged Winlink station and installed it, then were taught how to use Winlink Express. Granted this is only an exposure to the system and software, but it was hands on.

Winlink Presented at IARU region 2 in Chile.

Mexico's President of FMRE [XE2O] Alfonso Tamez, (their ARRL), presented Winlink to the IARU Region 2 conference in Chile.
It was well received by the reports I have obtained. It keeps Winlink in the spotlight as a product for EMCOMM to be used by amateur radio operators .

From ARES Newsletter, Oct 19, 2016

Mexicos FMRE (like ARRL), makes Winlink primary digital communications system.

This year I was able to attend the annual convention and selection of officers for the next 4 years in Mexico City.

They have adopted Winlink officially within their procedures for emergency messaging. This goes hand in hand with the support they have given, along with others, for multiple full service gateways in Mexico.

XE1BRX Mr. Remba and myself along with support from XE2SI Mr. Tellez, provided an introduction session on the Winlink network and Winlink Express.
